T.I. and estranged wife Tiny Harris have had cheating rumors swirling for months, but did the rapper finally officially confirm that he was unfaithful to his wife of seven years?
T.I., also known as TIP, appeared to admit that he cheated on the Xscape singer in a heartfelt and lengthy message he posted online alongside several photos of the two together in celebration of her 42nd birthday on July 14. TIP wrote in the caption that he “f***ed up” during their marriage and claimed that their relationship “supersedes fidelity.”
Posting a long message and a number of photos of himself and Tiny, also known as Tameka Cottle, over the years to his Instagram page after months of rumors he cheated with model Bernice Burgos, the rapper also wrote that he “may have f***ed up & still have so many more f*** ups in me on so many levels.”
T.I.’s admission had fans claiming that he may have finally officially confirmed he was unfaithful to Tiny, though he went on to admit that the twosome is finally in a good place after Harris filed for divorce in December.
Calling Tiny one of his best friends, TIP then revealed in his social media post that although they are officially ending their marriage, he actually doesn’t see their split and upcoming divorce as an official breakup.
“While most of these nosey, no business havin’, overly-opinionated, fake caring a** people would see it as a break up… I see it differently,” he wrote of their impending divorce.
TIP instead stated that instead of breaking up, they’re instead “evolving” their relationship into one that “supersedes fidelity, physical presence, or any other disagreement we may have faced.”
“What we have is stronger than the bulls**t & for that I’m thankful,” he continued in his lengthy birthday message for Tiny, who he first began dating 17 years ago.
TIP then signed off his Instagram message “with eternal love, respect & admiration” and even referred to Tiny as “Mrs H,” despite the couple separating last year and confirming their divorce in the finale of their VH1 reality show T.I. & Tiny: The Family Hustle.
Notably, the cheating rumors have been swirling around the couple for months after BET reported that T.I. had moved on from Tiny and was dating Bernice Burgos after rumors suggested that may have been together before Harris filed for divorce.
Tiny then alluded to her estranged husband cheating on her during the finale of the couple’s show in May where she claimed he had had “some infidelities with a girl who I hired” who’s thought to be Bernice, though she didn’t name her by name.
T.I. did not confirm the cheating allegations at the time, but then alleged in the series finale that Tiny had also cheated with boxer Floyd Mayweather despite him and the rapper being caught in a nasty feud for years.
Harris denied cheating herself after accusing TIP of infidelity, telling T.I. in a dramatic scene on the reality show, “I have never cheated on you. Ever.”
The two have since sparked reunion rumors after being spotted out and about together on several occasions, though TIP’s latest Instagram post appears to confirm that there’s little chance of a romantic reunion with Harris.
Do you think T.I. just confirmed in his birthday message that he cheated on Tiny Harris during their seven-year marriage?
